The MINIATURE SPORT CARS line featured both the Disney (Mickey, Donald, Pluto and Goofy) and Popeye characters (Popeye, Olive, Bluto and Wimpy) in a variety of sports car-type vehicles. Each character appeared in three different cars -- and there were up to 12 different types of racing and sports cars of the day, as well as a Volkswagon Beetle and a Jeep. The automobiles represented included what appears to be a wide range of late-1950s foreign cars, including: Formula One-type racing cars, a Mercedes, Jaguars, BMWs, and Alpha Romeos. All the cars and the small character figures were hand painted, and the cars came in different colors.
MINIATURE SPORT CARS were sold in small Disneykin-like individual boxes like the ones shown at the top of the display - for 10 cents each.
